My husband is from Richmond, Virginia, as was Edgar Allen Poe, so was very familiar with his back story as there is a lot of Poe lore to be found there. He found the character in NEVERMORE authentic to Poe's time in history and to all the stories...continued

Nevermore Indeed.

The comments on this performance are all raves. The show has been extended. It would seem sacrilege to criticize. Sometimes an iconoclast is needed.

I was looking for real insight into Poe and some new angles on his work....continued

A real tour-de-force performance that's an amazing value even without the Goldstar discount. See it now before it goes into a bigger venue with higher prices.

This was an excellent one-person play. Jeffrey gave an amazing portrayal of Poe. The text of the play was taken from actual Poe letters, essays, and reviews and reports of actual appearances.

When a friend told me that she'd been to see "Nevermore" twice, I knew I had to make it there. And was I ever glad that I did!
The acting was really incredible; my heart broke for Mr. Poe a dozen times that night. What a difficult and hard life...continued

In one word: FANTASTIC !! In two words: SUPERBLY FANTASTIC !! This one-man show by Jeffrey Combs made us more aware of the poet's success & struggles, mixed with his stories & poems. I have heard 'Tell-tale Heart' many times before as well as 'The...continued

Jeffrey Combs gave a phenomenal performance with outstanding attention to detail, such as dusty shoes and sipping from his flask, leaving just enough for a few drops. He showed the manic personality and the genius of Poe. His recitation of...continued

Highly recommend! A tour de force performance. The actor is able to make you appreciate the works of Poe, even of you were not a fan of the the writer or had not read his works since high school.

Historical and interesting play. The play was unsettling at times, the drunk Poe not attractive to watch.

Unbelievably well acted, and an interesting (if a tiny bit disjointed) story. Great evening!

Brilliant performance. Not an easy person to do or Poe would have been done long ago. Jeffery Combs will get nominated for his acting in this.
Script & direction also superior!

Jeffery Combs is marvelous! I was so engrossed that I literally jumped out of my seat in the scary sections. Every story and poem came alive. It's really too bad that he doesn't tell these stories in our classrooms. The students would be so...continued

A mind-blowing performance by Jeffrey Combs brings Poe to life before the audience's eyes, and occasionally into their laps. A recreation of the kind of readings Poe was giving near the end of his life, Combs' portrayal is at once amusing, tragic...continued

I really enjoyed this show!

It's about 90 minutes with no intermission, so just make sure to take care of business before it starts. Then settle in and prepare yourself for a very intense performance by a very talented actor. You can cut the...continued
